I am a firm believer that there’s power in our tears.
I really struggle with feelings of overwhelmed sadness and frustration when it comes to school shootings. Since hearing about the recent school shooting on February 14th in Florida my heart has been a mess. As a mommy to 4 children, 3 of which are school aged my mind constantly seems to go to the “what if” questions especially in light of such tragedies. I know that I’m not alone there’s many others out there that are hurting because of these senseless acts of violence.
I don’t understand why things like this happen. It makes me sad. I know that I am not alone with my emotions and my questions. To say that I feel completely overwhelmed would be a bit of an understatement. Since when has sending our kids off to school become such a scary thing? We need God more today than ever.
School Shootings, Gun Laws and Mental Health
I was reluctant to write a post on my blog about school shootings but came to the realization that at our core we are all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, etc. of school aged children. I know for a fact that I am not alone in the thought process that my children are my entire world. Also, the safety of our children is of utmost importance to each of us. Is there a solution to all this madness? I haven’t a clue. Several questions and concerns are floating around, is it more gun laws we need or more mental health outreach in our schools? Perhaps its a little of both. I’m not here to debate that.
